ConsStorage capacity isn't big enough

I bought a Samsung YPZ5 a few years back after having broken my previous MP3 and seeing this one discounted in an Argos sale booklet. It was a few years back and I’ve lost the receipt so I can’t remember exactly, but it was around £30 and it got great reviews. So, there I was with no MP3 to my...

Cons Battery Life, freezing

One thing I will say about the Samsung YP-Z5 is that it is VERY delicate. To scroll though the music, you use the arrow buttons in the middle which you only have to lightly touch, ( like a touch screen phone). I had, had my Samsung YP-Z5 for a few months when all of a sudden I foudn I couldnt...
